Re: Track days 2019

Just booked the PS weekender. I'm looking at Cadwell on the 22 May and Oulton or Donny in June.

Re: what the actual fuk

If I had a road legal bike (I'm not cycling over) I'd be over to take a look with you. Obviously not to stick my marker down on possible parts :shifty:

Re: MOTO GP 2019...

Looking at ditching my BT TV. Other than live on Mobdro and direct through MotoGP site, what other options at there? I'm not so fussed about qualifying etc, just the GP race. It's being shown as a hilights package on Quest... Also on their on demand sevice... https://www.questod.co.uk/show/motogp-2...

Clutching at straws here but have you got water in your front pot sparkplug hole?

Re: 2-stroke engine help

I had a quick look this morning and and parts seem available and cheap enough. Definitely not 1000s of hours and the mix OK but I realised the fuel could be years old. IIRC I mixed a 5lt can and it's been sitting around for ages. That will be going to the tip and my note to self is only mix what I n...

Re: Trailer loading - how even does even need to be?

Make sure you also distribute the weight front to back 60/40 to avoid fishtailing! Riding along M25 I came across a bike crash and wreckage which stopped all the traffic where everyone was looking frantically for the rider - under cars and roadside but it turned out it was a bike carried on a trail...

2-stroke engine help

Sorry this isn't Firestorm related, it's not even bike related. My chainsaw has started to show signs of wear but I'm not sure whether it's engine related or not. It's and Einhell that I've had for five or six years. It's not had industrial levels of use but it's had reasonably heavy home use. It's ...

Re: Trailer loading - how even does even need to be?

Cheers all. I'll give it a go with the bike on one side and all the rest of my sh1t on the other. If it tows badly I can sort it out before the next use.

Re: Just 'cause it's in a magazine don't mean it's that special

perhaps not the most comprehensive redo I have seen, but a nice bike nonetheless. I do wonder why he modded the fuel tank (apparently re-shaping the bottom portion for ram-air tubes), however. I was wondering that too. I can't see an airbox when I get as close as my eyes will focus. I was being a l...

A braced swinger and some trick suspension and they call it a 'special'.

Re: From 107 to 126

Update on the fork travel warning from Popkat. I measured the exposed stantion from the very top of the seal to the underside of the lower clamp on the stantion and there's a knat's rock hair more than 120mm with a +6mm pull through. The manual states the fork stroke is 120mm with the axle travel as...

Trailer loading - how even does even need to be?

The race van idea got knocked on the head so I now have twin axle braked box trailer. 8x5x5 foot, rear ramp door, side access door, max gross weight of 1800Kg and an unladen weight of around 550Kg. Nice and tidy with bike clamps and tie down points already in. It's set up for two bikes at the moment...
